Writer Block Challenge

My PC has given up on me since three days ago and until it is repaired, I am logon using a rather old laptop and living in the world of lags, without shadows. >.<

If you have sent me messages recently and haven’t heard back, chances are I have lost them because that’s exactly what happened – my PC automatically shut down a few seconds after I logon.  Please resend your messages in notecard if you need to reach me.

So, what have I been up to in the world of lag? I organized a very small part of my inventory, as well as entertaining myself with some stylings.   I miss blogging a lot but there’s nothing fancy I could do with the pictures until I am back on track with my PC.

Having said that, I remember this  blogger challenge called “Writer Block Challenge” that I read on Portia’s blog and thought it is something doable with a plain picture, so here I am!

writer block SFF 1024

I remember chatting with a friend sometime back  about blogging and she told me she doesn’t quite know what to write for her post at times.  This happens to everyone because there are days that we all have that mental block.  I thought this challenge is the perfect guide for a “mental block” day.

Let me get into the challenge now!

Click here to read step 1 to 3 which talked about picking outfit and taking picture.

……..and starting from Step 4

4) Share your favourite thing about this outfit.  Is it the clothing? A new hairstyle?

This Tweed shirt and pants set, from Kaithleen’s, is trendy and chic and easy to style as a formal business wear or a business casual wear for that dress down Friday.  I always love tweed textures.  It made one feels empowered.

Going for a semi formal look with this tweed set,  I added a soft colour blazer for a subtle contrast and some accessories to remind us Spring is here!

5) Why do you like this colour? These colours?

Blue is always an appealing colour on business wear because it is neutral, it is also the perfect colour on tweed textures, for that empowering look.  I have choosen light blue because the tweed textures standout more and hey, it’s spring!  I added a little pop of green to the overall ensemble, from the necklace and the clutch.

6) Are you accessorizing? If yes, why? If no, why not?

I accessorized with the wine necklace from Pure Poison and clutch from Olive and I used a semi casual updo hair for that effortless results, the same time making sure my neckline and necklace are not covered.   I always liked to add a statement piece onto my styling and the Wine necklace, with butterfly and flowers, is just the right touch for me, while the Olive purse that shouts “Fresh” adds a little playful essence to my overall look.

7) Why this pose?

The Berry pose from Label Motion looks is sassy in a natural way.  The body language shows someone that is confident and relaxed, just the attitude I need for this look!

8) How do you feel in this particular outfit?

I feel trendy, chic and definitely empowering!

9) Post your credits here (don’t forget your posemaker).

Trinidad by TORN

This outfit arrived a little late at my preparation of the Haute Show yesterday, but it is really worth the wait.  The Couture AFW Trinidad by TORN, a limited edition set, is a very unique number and I agreed with Leah that it is perfect for a Minimalist-Haute look, which is one of the latest real life fashion trends.

A few styling images popped up when I put on this outfit and I spent at least the first hour trying to make one of them worked but couldn’t and finally I opted to be a “Minimalist Magician” with the same Sophie Top Hat from Pure Poison that I adored. 🙂

TORN 2459

I have seldom required to prepare an outfit and poses within a few hours for a runway walk but thank you very very much to Leah for her helps and constant reassurance yesterday, I managed to make it worked!

I’ve got a lot of IMs inquiring about this outfit yesterday.  Thank you very much for your conpliments.  The Trinidad is now available at the AVENUE S/S Fashion Week retail gallery, the Haute section.

AVENUE Interview

After 7 weeks, 4 stylings and an interview, the AVENUE casting has finally come to an end yesterday.  All hardworks are finally paying off.  I was speechless when the interview panel said “Yes!” and sent me group invite on the spot.  I swore I would have sent a hug animation to the judges if it wasn’t because I wanted to look cool while leaving the interview room.

Also, congratulations to the rest of the models that have made it into AVENUE too.  I look forward to working with each of you in the future!

AVENUE is the second major casting I have done.  The experience was enriching and rewarding, and I got to try new stylings and push my own limits further with this opportunity.  So, for the interview round, we need to continue to dress to impress.  I have picked the jumpsuit from Zenith pairing it with a GField Bow Neck Top that I tinted to orange.  I picked these colours because Fall fashion and colours are one of the trends in this coming Spring and I used a men’s hair and more masculine accessory for a neutral look.

Thank you very much to all my friends that have supported me throughout the casting process.  You are the best!

Time Sensitive

Yes! Time is running out and there are only limited time left to grab some of these items….

The Little Rose dress by Solidea Folies, that was made exclusively for the Zenshi sim and for the month of January only….

The DRIFT blazer in Shanghai Pink texture selling at Limited Baazar now and only 100 pieces are available, at a very very decent price….

Drift + Solidea + Shiki 1209

It’s a modern oriental look that I am going for today; very excited that I get to wear my new Glance skin again. 😀

Besides the blazer, I paired the Little Rose top with a skirt from the SHIKI Couture Dress – CHAT NOIR set.  The skirt has a combinatiion of fur and frills; it’s a really cute piece.  My shoes are the latest release from N-core called DIVA.

Love how everything goes together, although I think my friend JoV might called that skirt flirty. 😛

I think that’s enough said, you should really hurry there to grab these items before they are all gone.
